Electronic Statistics Textbook
Rating

This textbook offers training in the understanding and application of statistics and data mining. The material was developed at the StatSoft R&D department based on many years of teaching undergraduate and graduate statistics courses. It covers a wide variety of applications, including laboratory research (biomedical, agricultural, etc.), business statistics, credit scoring, forecasting, social science statistics and survey research, data mining, engineering and quality control applications, and many others.
The Electronic Statistics Textbook begins with an overview of the relevant elementary (pivotal) concepts and continues with a more in depth exploration of specific areas of statistics, organized by "modules" and accessible by buttons, representing classes of analytic techniques. A glossary of statistical terms and a list of references for further study are included.
